About "Aristotle Horace T.S. Dorsch Longinus"

  1. Aristotle Horace T.S. Dorsch Longinus

    Greece Arabic Bulgarian Russian Alternate European spelling Aristoteles Aristotle 384 322 B.C numbers among the greatest philosophers of all time Judged solely in terms of his philosophical influence, only Plato is his peer Aristotle s works shaped centuries of philosophy from Late Antiquity through the Renaissance, and even today continue to be studied with keen, non antiquarian interest A prodigious researcher and writer, Aristotle left a great body of work, perhaps numbering as many as two hundred treatises, from which approximately thirty one survive His extant writings span a wide range of disciplines, from logic, metaphysics and philosophy of mind, through ethics, political theory, aesthetics and rhetoric, and into such primarily non philosophical fields as empirical biology, where he excelled at detailed plant and animal observation and taxonomy In all these areas, Aristotle s theories have provided illumination, met with resistance, sparked debate, and generally stimulated the sustained interest of an abiding readership.Because of its wide range and its remoteness in time, Aristotle s philosophy defies easy encapsulation The long history of interpretation and appropriation of Aristotelian texts and themes spanning over two millennia and comprising philosophers working within a variety of religious and secular traditions has rendered even basic points of interpretation controversial The set of entries on Aristotle in this site addresses this situation by proceeding in three tiers First, the present, general entry offers a brief account of Aristotle s life and characterizes his central philosophical commitments, highlighting his most distinctive methods and most influential achievements Second are General Topics which offer detailed introductions to the main areas of Aristotle s philosophical activity Finally, there follow Special Topics which investigate in greater detail narrowly focused issues, especially those of central concern in recent Aristotelian scholarship

  1. The inclusion of Horace was a little strange but the poem had a few good things to say about the figure of the poet in Rome and showed how a lot of Aristotle and Plato s ideas had been translated to Roman literary thought.Longinus and the Poetics were both really great I m not convinced by Aristotle s conviction that plot has to be central to these plays His obsession with recognition is somewhat dubious it s a necessary step in a fair few tragedies but by no means all of them There s the inter [...]


  2. I found Aristotle s On the Art of Poetry virtually unreadable so eventually I gave up.Horace s On the Art of Poetry was excellent Clearly written and conceived with logical advice that is still relevant to any writer today.I didn t really attempt Longinus s On the Sublime.


  3. Much less harder than I thought it would be It is completely understandable, quite enjoyable, and certainly interesting A must read for literature students.


  4. Aristotle suggests a drama should have a beginning, a middle and an end Good advice Horace and Longinus expand on this at some length Well worth a read.


  5. The standard text on storytelling A must read Much of it will seem cliched or hackneyed but remember this had never been said before 2 and a half thousand years ago
